For over a century, the writings of F. B. Meyer have provided Christians with a treasure trove of lasting value, affirming the gospel for every age. Careful editing by Lance Wubbels has helped to sharpen the focus of Meyer's thoroughly biblical portraits and update the language, while retaining their authentic and timeless flavor.
F. B. Meyer's devotional studies on biblical characters reflect a rare depth of spiritual experience. It is comforting to find that these great figures were not so different from ourselves... sometimes weak, indifferent, and willful. Yet they had their moments of faith, humility, and courage, and God was able to use these for His greater purposes. God's faithfulness, which not only accepts but transforms such inconsistency, calls us to more effective Christian living.
